Ridiculous meat question.

THewat | May 12, 2011 10:17 AM

I understand that I'm supposed to thaw meat in the refrigerator (or in a water bath for less time) to slow bacteria growth. If I'm making stock, say, and planning to boil the meat for several hours, is there anything wrong with moving the meat - in this case ham hocks - directly from freezer to pot of boiling water?
